The Other Art Fair-New Work

My next London show is at The Other Art Fair http://www.theotherartfair.com/ site  on the 7th to the 10th of April. This is my 8th appearance at this dynamic and evolving art fair. I’ve a bigger stand than usual and will be dividing my work into my Uberpainting/traditional landscape and my abstract work

 

I’ve been working hard on my abstract work and can see some massive potential and endless possibilities. I’ve revisited my weaving with watercolour from where I left it last year.

It’s a relatively simple concept involving painting and weaving together two separate paintings

The possibilities are endless. I can either focus on a very structured formula using straight lines or something based on a circle as above.

Or create a more abstract cut. All of them are designed to highlight tonal and contrast variations in a way that could never be depicted by painting alone.

It really works brilliantly in black and white. As with all watercolour tone is really the primary element, colour is just a welcome bonus.

As I’ve worked through these ideas it’s often impossible to predict what will actually happen until the entire process is completed. These two paintings particularly surprised me.
